US vs. Ghana
I just now got to watch the US vs. Ghana game (I was at work while it was on). I have to say, I'm very disappointed. The penalty kick resulting in the second Ghana goal was, I think, undeserved. Still, I guess it doesn't matter that much, since we still would only have tied without it, and still would not have advanced to the round of sixteen. Oh well, maybe we'll do better in 2010.

US vs. Italy
We just tied Italy!
That was probably the worst officiated game I have ever seen. There wera a total of three red cards, one of which was justified, and more yellow cards than I could keep track of. Truly awful. So with Italy's one red card and the US's two, we were playing 9 on 10 for almost the entire second half, and we still didn't allow them any goals. Granted, we didn't actually score any goals, as the one point we had was an own-goal by an Italian defender, but I'm pretty sure that even if he had kicked it like he meant to, the American forward right in front of him would have gotten it in. Beasly got one kick into the Italian goal, but McBride was just slightly ahead of their last defender, so it was off sides. Still, McBride almost scored about five times. I think if we had been able to keep all of our players on the field, even if Italy did, too, it would have been a 2-1 upset. To get to the second round (brackets), the US will have to beat Ghana by any amount if Italy beats the Czach Republic, but we will have to beat them by at least 5 points Italy and the Czech Republic tie. So hopefully Italy and the US both win.

World Cup 2006
I watched the Germany vs. Costa Rica game after I got home from work today. That was a great game. Germany made a beautiful, almost postage stamp goal only 5 minutes in, and Costa Rica scored 6 minutes after that. Both teams played really well. I had expected Germany to, but I was surprised at how well Costa Rica kept up. It was tied for a lot of the game, and then Costa Rica was only down by one point for quite a while. Germany pulled another great goal just before the 90 minute mark, making the final score 4-2. I recorded the Poland vs. Ecuador game too, but I didn't watch it yet. The US doesn't play until Monday (against the Czec Republic). Hopefull they will at least tie them.

Girls, please solve this problem!
(And if you get the answer, please tell me the answer because I don't want to do it.)
Assume that the pitching moment characteristics of a propeller driven airplane are as shown in the figure below. If the elevator deflection will generate an incremental pitching moment coefficient given by: ∆Cm = Cm(δe), calculate and plot the elevator angle, δe, to trim versus the thrust coefficient for zero flaps and for flaps down. Assume that Cm(δe) = -0.02 1/deg and α = 6 deg.National Chili Day
I'm having chili for dinner. I suggest you do the same.
